Cloud-based Analytics Platform To Help NiagaraAX Customers Reduce Energy Costs, Improve Efficiency.
Tridium, a global leader in open platforms and automation solutions, announced at its Niagara Summit that it has acquired DataEye, an energy analytics application, from Controlco, a California-based controls products and solutions provider. The cloud-based analytics application will be incorporated into Tridium’s industry-leading NiagaraAX automation platform to provide customers with data and information to improve energy efficiency across building portfolios.
The only cloud-based analytics engine native to the Niagara platform, DataEye provides access to real-time and historic information so that energy managers can operate their buildings with more precision and efficiency. Tridium expects the DataEye module to be available to the Niagara community later this year.
Nino DiCosmo, president of Tridium, said:
“The Niagara platform helps our customers around the world manage large and complex systems, but ‘big data’ is useless without analytics that make it actionable. DataEye will bring a cloud-based analytics engine to the global Niagara community.”
“Having a Niagara-based analytics tool is simpler for integrators to configure and install, and provides end-users with the ability to make better decisions on energy efficiency investments. This is an example of partner-driven innovation that we welcome.”
Created as a software extension by Controlco under its CSI3 brand in 2008, DataEye offers advanced data modeling capabilities, so that building information can be interpreted in meaningful and economically beneficial ways across several buildings simultaneously, delivering consistent results every time. The system also offers fault detection and advanced scheduling capabilities.
“We are long-standing supporters of Niagara and recognize the power of building applications native to this framework,” said Brian Turner, president of Controlco.
“We look forward to working with Tridium on the rollout of this the DataEye module. Moving forward, we will continue to innovate at a high level in the energy and automation space.”
